If you have ever wondered what a notary public in BC does, you are not alone! Jane Letourneau at Letourneau Notary Corp is happy to explain the responsibilities of notaries public in British Columbia.
Firstly, a notary is not a lawyer. A notary is not directly involved with contentious areas of law, such as personal injury, family law, or criminal law.
Jane Letourneau in British Columbia is authorized to offer services in two areas of law: planning documents and real estate transactions. As she focuses on these two areas of law, she is highly experienced in them and strives to provide efficient and knowledgeable services to the general public. She is also continually upgrading her knowledge so it is up to date with practice being of huge importance to her.
Jane Letourneau also assists in matters like power of attorney and representation agreements, witness affidavits, will preparation, and statutory declarations. She can provide effective and efficient service when it comes to dealing with these procedures, and can reduce expense, complications, and delays as well as conflict and misunderstanding.
Jane Letourneau holds some important responsibilities.
What is a Power of Attorney?
A common service we provide is powers of attorney. This document allows a person you trust to assist you with financial, property, and legal matters. For example, it allows next of kin or a trusted friend to access and handle your bank account on your behalf should you be incapacitated. At Letourneau Notary Corp, we can advise you on whom to appoint as your attorney.
